Jeff is a good young player that went 3-6 in his latest Factory outing. In the outfield, he showed great arm action, good footwork and an ability to make plays. Implementing a throwing program and increasing his foot speed will help his outfield play. At the dish, he tracks well, is balanced throughout his swing, and has an ability to spray the ball. His swing has a tendency to get long, and his front side flies open, at times. On the mound, he topped out at 76 MPH with a 10/4 curve-ball and a change-up. He needs to find some consistency with his mechanics to be more accurate and effective in the zone. Overall, Jeff is a great kid and plays the game hard. He is coachable and a great teammate.
